Task 1

Read the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

Little Red Riding Hood
Once upon a time there lived a little girl called Little Red Riding Hood. People called her that because she wore a long, red dress and a bright, crimson coat. 
Early one morning, her mother said “take this basket of food to your grandmother’s house because she isn’t feeling very well”. 
“Listen carefully, whatever you do don’t talk to any strangers along the way”
Into the basket she put a slice of bread, a juicy apple and some delicious biscuits.
Little Red Riding Hood walked until she got to the middle of the gloomy, dark forest. 
The forest was so dark that she didn’t know where she was going. 
After a while, Little Red Riding Hood found a tall tree where she could rest. 
While she was resting a woodcutter came and said “Where are you going?” 
Unfortunately, the Big Bad Wolf was hiding behind a tree and he listened as she explained everything to the woodcutter. 
Greedily, the Big Bad Wolf licked his lips while he ran quickly to the cottage. 
A while later, Little Red Riding Hood arrived at the cottage and she let herself in. Grandmother was lying in her bed looking very strange. 
“Oh grandmother what big ears you have!” said Little Red Riding Hood.
“All the better to hear you with”
“Oh grandmother, what big eyes you have!”
“All the better to see you with”
“Oh grandmother, what big hands you have!”
“All the better to hug you with”
“Oh grandmother, what big teeth you have!”
“All the better to eat you with” the wolf cried angrily. 
Little Red Riding Hood screamed loudly as the wolf opened his huge terrifying mouth. 
Suddenly, the woodcutter came crashing through the door and chased the wolf away. What a brave man he was!
Luckily, grandmother was safe because she cleverly hid in the cupboard while the wolf was in her cottage. They all sat and enjoyed the lovely basket of food and they lived happily ever after.
